Cal Thomas, one of America’s most read syndicated columnists, addressing the future of the Republican Party and conservatives in general, had this to say: “If Republicans want to do something about the future, they should back a growing movement to pull children out of underperforming public schools where often their views, values, understanding of history and even faith are undermined. Home-schooling is an option.”
Increasingly, conservative commentators like Thomas are addressing this problem with the urgency that it demands. While most Republican politicians have their hearts set on capturing the White House and other centers of power, visionary conservatives will have to plan and execute a strategy that will impact generations to come. History will condemn them if they don’t.
As E. Ray Moore very insightfully said in IndoctriNation, “Christians realize that we are losing our civilization so they’re out there trying to get people elected to Office, when they’ve neglected their own sons and daughters sitting in their homes and in their churches. And I believe the Lord is not going to bless any of these efforts until we first turn back to our own children.”
Here is an excerpt from Thomas’ article:
The public school system, seemingly a “hot house” for growing new generations of secular liberals, is a failure on many levels. It makes no sense to me to put one’s children in a school system that will likely transform their minds and souls into something quite different from those of their parents.
